Sangrur, January 8

Sangrur police on Friday registered a case against SP (Jail), a DSP and a warden for alleged corruption.

All are facing allegations of providing mobiles inside the jail and sending an inmate to a hospital outside the jail after taking money. They are also facing allegations of sending an incorrect report to their senior officers.

Police have registered the FIR under sections of prevention of corruption Act 1988, 52 A prisons Act and of Disaster Management Act 2005.

“We have registered the FIR against SP Balwinder Singh, DSP Amar Singh and warden Gurpartap Singh. Further investigations are on," said Pritpal Singh SHO Sangrur city-1.

Earlier, in 2019, the jail department had suspended five senior officers of Sangrur jail after inmates had made allegations that officers were demanding bribe for not implicating them in false cases.
